Segment 1 (silent + sound): Actor Hugh O'Brian, who played Wyatt Earp, is seen surrounded by teenage girls, signing autographs in front of the Sainte Claire Hotel. O'Brian was in town to kickoff the Santa Clara Cancer fundraising drive, as Chairman of the 1966 California Cancer Crusade. Interviewed about the crusade, O'Brian says the teams of youngsters working on the crusade should be commended, and we should remember that the majority of youth are upstanding citizens.
Segment 2 (silent): Dedication of Edward Daly Science Center at Santa Clara University. The Very Reverend Pedro Arrupe officiated and is seen blessing the building. Exterior shots of the building and interior auditorium and classrooms.
Segment 3 (sound): Interview with San Jose Bees first baseman Don Anderson, from Long Beach, at the Bees' training camp in Holtville, about his form and his background.
Segment 4 (silent): Santa Clara Broncos baseball team beat University of Portland 15-1. Per the broadcast script, "Rod Austen, Bob Spence, and Dan Harrington were the hitting stars for Broncos. Auston hit two home runs, Spence added another and Harrington went 3 for 4, and drove in 3 runs. Pete Boyle went all the way to pick up the win."
Segment 5 (silent): Santa Clara Broncos football team opened spring practice. Shots of drills on the field.
Segment 1 (silent + sound): Walkout staged by San Jose's Police Advisory Board Subcommittee. Shots of the committee meeting in a conference room; several members stand and talk at the table; large number get up and leave the room, then are seen standing and talking outside. Al Pinon is then interviewed (sound) about why they walked out, and says the committee are not demonstrating that they're doing anything, so they need to circumvent these luncheon meetings that they have every month that do nothing. The Human Relations Commission has been emasculated, the City Council are ineffectual, and he can waste his time in many other ways than coming to this luncheon meeting. According to the broadcast script, "The meeting was called to name four members to the expanded Police Advisory Board, set up to channel complaints from the community to Police Chief Ray Blackmore. Two Negroes and two Mexican Americans were to be appointed, but this motion was quickly tabled. Dissident committee members protested the advisory functions of the board. CORE's Andy Montgomery, in an emotional appeal for investigative power, said, 'We cannot accept this position at this point.' He referred to Chief Blackmore's insistence that no investigative power be given the board to probe alleged police brutality. When it was made clear there would be no investigative board, the dissidents walked out of the session. Any selection of board members was postponed for a month. The group met outside the YMCA meeting room to discuss their next move. Al Pinon of the Community Service Organization indicated the minority groups might form an investigative review board of their own."
Segment 2 (sound): California Republican Senator George Murphy interviewed about Vietnam at Santa Clara University, says we need a "win" policy and we need it right away.
Segment 1 (sound): Senator George Murphy comments on the Delano farm workers strike and how it will affect farm prices.
Segment 2 (sound): Los Angeles Mayor Sam Yorty speaks to camera to attack Governor Brown's position on farm labor legislation.
Segment 3 (silent): Carlos Reposo sentencing hearing, charged with forcing his way into the Willow Glen home of his sister-in-law and opening fire with a rifle after his estranged wife refused to return with him to Gilroy. Shots of Reposo entering the courtroom and sitting down, then looking straight at the camera with a look suggesting anger and dejection, then shakes his head slightly and looks away.
